The swimmer arrested after bringing the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race to a dramatic halt will appear in court today. The annual contest on the River Thames was interrupted after the man was spotted in the vessels' path and the competition had to be restarted almost half an hour later.
Trenton Oldfield, aged 35, is due before Feltham Magistrates' Court charged with a public order offence. He says he was making a stand against elitism.
The drama of the race continued after his arrest when the blade of an Oxford oar broke and the crew's bowman Alex Woods collapsed at the end and required hospital treatment.
